HC Deb 07 April 1952 vol 498 cc2266-7
19. Sir W. Darling

asked the Minister of Food if he will give general information to the public as to the respective food values of wheat flour, barley meal, oatmeal, maize, semolina, tapioca, and rice.

Major Lloyd George

My hon. Friend will be glad to know that this information has already been published in the Medical Research Council's War Memorandum No. 14 on the "Nutritive Value of Wartime Foods" and in my Department's "Manual of Nutrition."

Sir W. Darling

Would not my right hon. and gallant Friend agree that this should be re-published frequently, and that it is some time since that announcement was made?

Major Lloyd George

It is available now. The price of the first-mentioned publication is 2s. and the second 1s. But to save the time of my hon. Friend in reading it, I can inform him that oatmeal still comes first.
